What do you do with 10,640 board feet?
Well, you build a three bedroom house, of course!
I love it when I stumble upon something unexpected, which I did yesterday as I journeyed "to the middle of the nowhere" for a work assignment.
I was overnighting in the small town of Canyonville in Douglas County. Situated in the heart of timber country between the hills of the Umpqua Valley, a traveler would most likely pass right by unless they had reason to venture off of the beaten track.
When I casually turned the corner at the Saw & Supply Shop, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a rather LARGE hunk of Douglas Fir.
Not just any Douglas fir, mind you, but a specimen measured to be 110 inches in diameter and 142 years old when Columbus first set foot upon the continent.
